As has been mentioned numerous times within the past week, the admins are interested in hiring a few more members and bring them on to the staff team! The team has not seen many changes for quite a few years now, and with the Discord changes now underway, we felt it was a great time to bring in some new people into the team and spice things up a bit. We are looking to hire up to four members, so this is a good opportunity to join the team!

 

Before we discuss how to apply specifically, there is something that needs to be announced first: we have decided to consolidate the two staff roles (Forum Moderators and Database Staff) together. There's a couple of main reasons for this. Firstly, we felt as though the current staff, regardless of the primary role they have, already participate in handling staff correspondence within the forums, database, and Discord collectively. Secondly, considering that PureZC is a close-knit and small community, all moderators should be able to handle moderating both the database and forum portions of the site. We really do not get as many database submissions or have to deal with as many forum issues and infractions as we used to, so there was less of an inclination to keep requiring specialized moderators and maintaining the distinction. In essence, the current system makes much more sense for a larger community and as a result, it felt natural to consolidate both roles together in order to simplify the staff team as a whole.

 

The staff we will be hiring (plus the current moderators) will therefore be responsible for both the forum and database sections of the site and participating in staff discussions and polls. This includes moderating the forums, issuing warning points for rule violations, and handling staff correspondence for a variety of issues as well as reviewing database submissions and moderating reviews and comments on such submissions. In addition to all of this, we will be placing a big emphasis on moderating the PureZC Discord server in accordance with the changes that just went into effect today so be sure to be prepared for that. This all may sound like a lot, but please do not worry as the current staff team will make sure that the learning transition phase is as smooth as possible for those that are hired on. :)

 

If you are interested, you can submit your application by sending a private message, through PureZC, to me! You can make your case however you would like in your application. Here's some questions to get you started thinking: What are strengths that you personally would bring to the staff team? Why are you interested in joining the staff team? Why do you think you would make a great moderator? You are of course not limited to these questions, and please do not hesitate to share your strengths and good qualities!

 

The staff applications will be open until the end of the day Monday, March 30th! Your applications will be reviewed by the admins and a decision will be reached soon afterwards. Best of luck to everyone that is interested and we cannot wait to receive your applications!

Are there any specific qualifications you're looking for in candidates, and if so, what?

What kind of workload is expected per individual member?

And how long do you expect selection to take past the last submission date?

For my part, I think being thoughtful and level-headed are key traits, as well as having a strong sense of empathy for other people. Some degree of writing skill is also important, or at least strong communication skills online. I also personally value introspection, a drive toward self-improvement, and the ability to compromise.

 

Workload doesn't seem like it should be too much. That's part of our goal in gaining more members to start with, is to make sure no one feels overwhelmed. A lot of the time, staff work can be downright sleepy, but there's times when a lot seems to come up at once, and having more hands on deck seems important.

 

As far as the time to make our decisions, it shouldn't be too terribly long after applications close. I'd expect no more than a couple days. But it does depend on what else is going on at the time.

Hi everyone! Just a quick friendly reminder that all staff applications are due in about 2 days! We will make a post here when the submissions are officially closed.

 

We've had a great turnout so far! However, as always, if anyone's been hesitating to make an application, I urge you to make one and we will be happy to consider it. :)

I'll give this another hour in case anyone is submitting an application at the last minute. Once that hour is up, the submissions will be closed!

 

The admins will discuss the applications and we'll reach a decision within a couple of days, hopefully. Thanks everyone! :)

An hour he said. Do you think he's using the same sense of time that Frieza does?  :tard:

Guess he never came back and specifically said applications were closed, but they totally are. Guess I'll lock this and stuff so it has that air of grim finality. What is done can never be undone.
